Steam users are used to buying their games, having their wallets raped on weekend sales and being able to download their purchased games any time they want…but that isn’t the case with EA’s Origin which has already pulled their newest games from Steam’s Library.
According to a disclaimer on EA’s website, users who purchase any game from EA Origins may only download or access the game for a limit of one year before they might need to repurchase the title again to keep….unlike Steam’s system where the game stays on your account for good without the need of a repurchase.
Some gamers are pissed off at EA’s plan to give out special weapon unlocks to whoever pre-orders Battlefield 3 but as Vicky put it in another post, why get mad when the guns don’t unbalance the game? On the other hand, pulling games from Steam seems to push more gamers to the point of unleashing their nerd rage and boycott EA even more.
It’ll be a matter of time before EA goes crawling back to Steam….just maybe.
